Transaction Banking , Payments , Infrastructure

The Western Union Company, a leader in global payment services—has announced that it will be extending their long-standing relationship with Metro Inc. a top Quebec and Ontario supermarket chain—and one of Western Union Canada’s largest Agent networks. Western Union international and domestic money transfer and bill payment services will continue to be available at more than 360 Metro locations in Ontario and Quebec.

Through these services, funds can be sent from participating Metro locations—which include Metro and Food Basics stores in Ontario and Metro, Metro Plus and Super C stores in Quebec—to a combined network of over 500,000 Agent locations in 200 countries and territories around the globe. Metro Inc., headquartered in Quebec, is the third largest supermarket chain in Canada.

The Western Union® global money transfer system offers Metro—and customers—true international connectivity via cross-border money transfers in minutes* between consumers, and also from consumers to businesses within Canada.

“In teaming with Western Union, Agents like Metro are able to extend a real value add to consumers, by offering reliable money transfer and bill payment services,” said Juan Carlos Blanco, Vice President and General Manager for Western Union, Canada.

* Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the select ion of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
